Synopsis

This book records atrocities in Latin America but also reveals the voices of survivors. Many of the essays deal with life in Chile after the military coup, when torture and murder were a way of life, not just for those who openly opposed the regime but also for artists, writers and other 'subversives'. Some deal with the double persecution of Jews in Latin America, some with the art produced by the victims. They all mourn, yet they celebrate the strength of the people who fought, and continue to fight, against injustice.
